the united states state department was an extension of the israeli government. things like that are unnerving. there is at least one speech he gave that he did not report that we think there is a copy of that we may get in the next few days. that is why i should -- i would oppose cloture today. i will vote for it after the recess. host: senator lindsey gramm of south carolina. joe is on our independent line. caller: i have interest in giving you a call because i have been doing research on the government. at this time, i have to publicize to the world that the government has committed an act of tyranny. they are doing what they should -- -- they are not doing what they should be done -- be doing for the sake of our people. and this time to play hardball against these individuals were shown in the past 80 years who have not been in the better interest of our children. that means 300 million of us need to get really involved in our government and participate. these guys do not care about this. history is showing it. the congress and senate -- this is why the federalists, james madison, set up t
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
, a lot of these congressmen who have been in government for a while, and some of the new ones are doing the job that they were sent there to do. they are representing the constituency from where they are from. the democrats do the same. i know we have differences on both sides of the aisle, but i believe that being able to -- being able to work together and coming together as a nation and congress has a lot to do with barack obama as the president. he was reelected. he needs to be in the white house. he needs to lead this nation. he does not need to be out in campaign mode. that is all i have seen from barack obama. campaign, speech -- let's get everybody in the white house, and let's get things done. guest: a couple of points -- we hear this from constituents, that they are frustrated that they are not seeing the leadership. what he is saying really plays into that. leaders are team builders. they know how to bring people forward to find consensus. the president's speech the other night was all about the president and about his plans. it was not about the items that are on the wrong tr
crime and the like and the fact we have expressly prohibited certain agencies of government of doing any research into gun violence, how to reduce it, we don't think twice about reducing -- calling for research in reducing epidemics and reducing the incidents of disease. can you talk from a public health perspective about the problem of gunshot deaths in our country and what you think we need to do to address it? >> sure. as i indicated in my testimony, i think from a policy standpoint, really the most important thing is that we currently make it way too easy for criminals to get guns. and there are some commonsense ways to address that. we need comprehensive background checks. we are never going to be effective without that. as is indicated by the numbers, it's difficult to prosecute them and that's frankly by design. the laws are written in a way to minimize accountability for those who are buying and selling firearms. i think that's very wrong-headed. i have several studies that i've conducted that showed very consistent evidence that states that have greater measures to hold firearm
. the not of the state of the government but of our american community. therefore, set forth responsibilities to form a more perfect union. the state of the union is strong. >> as we gather tonight, our nation is at war. our economy is in recession, and the civilized world faces unprecedented danger is. yet the state of our union has never been stronger. >> it is because of our people that our future is helpful -- hopeful. and the state of our union is strong. >> president obama delivers this year's address with the preview program at 8:00 a.m. eastern. tuesday night on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org. >> president obama awarded the medal of honor to clinton romesha. this is half an hour. ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states and mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by medal of honor recipients staff sgt clinton romesha. ♪ ["hail to the chief"] >> let's pray. eternal god, from whom we come to whom we belong, and in whose service we find peace, such as written to be found in the spirit of truth and justice. on yourselves. the you men of valor -- of valor. be ready fo
government checks, handouts and programs. that would be the way to save this country, in my opinion. that's the way to help poor people and i resent the fact that those of us who have a different view of how to help poor people somehow don't care about them. compassion and help for the poor and struggling amounts to more than just borrowing money and sending out more money in the form of checks. my goal is to help working americans from the social and economic harm that is caused by policies i think of this president and the senate majority. these programs have not worked in places like baltimore. one in three residents in baltimore are living in poverty. there are solutions to these problems and we can do better, we have to do better, we cannot continue on this course. so compassion demands change. our goal must be to help more americans find gainful employment and let them support themselves, their family and to prosper. before closing my remarks, i would like to address a serious challenge we will be facing. we have to consider the immigration questions, and studies show the $2.5 trill
-led government and minority sunnis. u.n. investigators said today the time has come for suspected war criminals in syria to face the international criminal court. carla del ponte, a member of a u.n. commission of inquiry, said even if there is ultimately a peace settlement, it must not give a free pass to those accused of atrocities. >> i'm concerned about what he's done in the political side to achieve peace and to negotiate peace. what i'm sure that once international justice is dealing with this case, it is no amnesty at all. >> sreenivasan: the commission found the civil war is increasingly sectarian and radicalized on both sides. it also cited the spread of weapons as a growing concern, and urged the international community to curb the flow of arms into syria. another member of the u.s. senate has decided to step aside. republican mike johanns of nebraska announced today he will not seek a second term next year. in a statement, he said he wants to spend more time with his family, after spending 32 of his 62 years in various offices. johanns is the fifth senator to announce plans to retire
.?? >> john, said a funny thing. you said no matter how much the government screws up, caltech will still be caltech and m.i.t. will still be m.i.t. outside the beltway, it is a different reality and you talked about public and private partnerships at the local level. can you talk about why they are so important and maybe share your story about how you see the power partnerships? >> i did not mind it versus the real world. i spend most of my time with the company's seen what kind of problems they're having in what they're struggling with. it's true. in the same way that jeff immelt was not worried about only g e come up but there are a lot of companies out there that you do have to worry about. i'm not worried we're going to get left behind in terms of did creating all of these. we have the smartest people in the world at caltech's and m.i.t.'s. we need to work together to bring that to bear so businesses are doing well and we have jobs. that has been my concern for a long time and it continues to be so. this morning, there is a lot of discussion of partnerships. then we heard about netwo
economy is taken by the federal government. he didn't say any of this. he didn't say any of this because it's embarrassing. it's a disaster. >>brian: he's got 52% approval rating but 54% of the people say they're on the wrong track. it is how you describe your family. the american public likes him personally and they factor in what can you do about it? we like him and we're going to take the job performance away from the likeability. >>steve: most republicans -- >>brian: it's almost as if what can you do? he's our president and i like him personally, so i'm not going to hold him responsible for the food stamps and unemployment, the lack of economic growth or diminishing standing around the world, the shrinking of our military. >>gretchen: we talked about how the polls even before the election seemed to say, the most recent one ing probleming, 83% think in the country. yet to listen to the state of the union it was about more spending. there is this disconnect, cognitive distance, family relations, whatever you want to call it. >>steve: the fact that the president was pushing a very liber
is when one side or the other -- which it has a perfect right to do under our system of government -- decides to try to kill a nomination by denying 60 votes or to stop legislation by 60 votes. the democrats have done it on a regular basis when they were in the minority, and the distinguished majority leader was one of the most effective persons in -- in the senate at doing that. i presided many times over the senate when he objected. i remember the -- you know, when we were trying to get 60 votes to -- to have a permanent change in the estate law and we'd get up to 57 or 58 or 59 and the distinguished majority leader would object. now, what are we doing today? we're doing today exactly what was said when the vote was called. the question was, do 60 of us believe that it's time to end debate on the nomination of the president to be secretary of defense, the leader of the largest military organization in the world, the largest employer in the united states, and the senate armed services committee has reported that recommendation to the senate two days ago? not ten days ago, not 15 d
in texting while walking through crosswalks. is that a good idea or too much government? >> he bumps into me all the time. >> he bumps into poles. >> "fox & friends" begins right now. >> hey, this is mike roe from dirty jobs. you are watching "fox & friends," cleanest people i have seen in ages. [rooster crowing] >> must be watching this show. papers everywhere. >> good morning, everybody. great to be with you guys. i feel like i haven't seen you for a long time. >> i was traveling. anyways, the holidays, did that just happen? >> i guess so. maybe that's the problem. >> nice to see you, tucker. >> good morning. >> we have a lot coming up this morning a primal workout. alisyn on all fours making a tiger. is that right? >> wow! >> that's what i hear. they tell me i'm going to be acting like some sort of wild beast. >> is that in your contract, alisyn? >> thank you, tucker. thank you. >> i'm going to get my lawyer on the phone as soon as he wakes up. >> massive meteor breaking apart over russia. another meteor overnight. this one over california. dash cam video. wow. of the official falling fro
. the government announced a new test on television. >>> they are trying to defend the country's security and sovereignty in the -- sovereignty in the ferocious acts of the united states. >> this is it since they took a highly provocative act that threatens international peace. the president said north korea has increasingly isolated and improv rushed it's people through weapons of mass destruction. >>> now the white house said the president will talk about some of the issues he brought up in his inauguration reform. immigration reform more than anything theez president's address is expected to give it to you since he ran for this office and it has been what weigh feed to do to work for the middle-class. >> former senator senator marco rubio will give the republican response. he will deliver his address in both english and spanish to attract at ville leino vetters. >>> he will be seated along with other guests near the first lady and the first lady has also invited them and they are holding a watch party which is being held in the basement of dunn hall at 6:00. professors will be able to
power in the entire economy. there's one -- we essentially make the government their leverage. they say they need to get at least this much of the profit, and if we don't see a huge disemployment affect from that, then it's probably a pretty good idea. yes, to marco rubio's point, to speaker yon boehner's point, it's not a solution to the problems of our economy, but it is one thing we can do that helps very, very low skill workers, people at the bottom of the income ladder, get a little bit more from what are at this moment very profitable, very profitable period in corporate profits. >> it's not just about a little bit more because that's a good idea. if you look at -- i mean, one in three american families is living near poverty. i mean, the census number -- the number of american families that are basically living on the brink of the powerhouse, as we cut programs to help the poor and the needy, is rather staggering when you look at, again, corporate profits. demos did a great study and looked at the impact of raising the minimum wage on workers, and effectively, if wal-mart, for ex
and it wasn't just going after bin laden but it was -- he turned out to be a key source for the government. as a detainee he shed lights on al qaeda's strategic doctrine, on their plots, probable targets key operatives, likely methods of attack on the u.s. homela. ge body of intelligence we got by capturing khalid sheikh mohammed and putting him through enhanced inter know,rogati thers been some f.b.i. officials that said we have this information, some of the information that he divulged we had from other sources. >> well, he was telling us the truth. >> rose: but if you had the information beforehand, was it necessary? >> so we should have killed khalid sheikh mohammed? >> rose: i'm asking. >> i'm a big believer in the interrogation program. the point is -- >> rose: b i mean go ahead. >> k.s.m. was more than anybody else objected to enhanced interrogation techniques and more than anybody else provided us with key pieces of intelligence that we needed in order to defend the nation against al qaeda. >> rose: define "enhanced interrogation." >> it was a specific set of techniques that were
. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we have seemed to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> as we look ahead to 2016, rubio and the jindals and christies of the world represent two different schools of thinking in terms of how to rebrand the party and how to fight obama. >>> well, it's valentine's day, but love is not in the air, for anyone here in washington. what's new about that? up next, more on the republican party, at odds with itself, messenger and messaging. plus, what do they think of the obama agenda. with all the love lost, is it time for a breakup? we talk to tennessee congressman, marsha blackburn, who says it's time to get rid of the grand old party. >>> but first, a look ahead, in today's politics planner, a lot of sequester hearings today. arne duncan on the hill, talking about that. secretary clinton getting an honor at the pentagon today. and of course, the president in atlanta, but he also does a google hangout. so get your head gear on. you're watching "the daily rundown," only
't in the government. it's abstored begin with on that note. again, i look for what's their real motivation, now, one thing which is what they say then there's a second thing, what they're waiting for some sort of problem for hagel. why do they not like hagel in the first place. is there main complaint we are not sure this guy is going to push the button and go to war with iran? is that the issue. >> senator mccain did an interview with fox news channel after the vote and pointed out that senator hagel in 2008, when barack obama was facing him in the nomination gave him cover in a sense, that he was out on this foreign trip with him sort of passively supporting his candidacy. mccain didn't go so far as to say this, but he pointed out thatten obsign iraq and that campaign, that he wasn't on our side. the other point is senator graham was right quite frank on this, we know hagel has nothing to do with benghazi, but this is the only leverage we have, this is the way the game is played. we're trying to leverage this situation to get more questions acknowledged about benghazi from the white house as the w
better, markets are storming back. and that in this environment, there is more room for the government to spend, more room for companies to look forward to what he has to offer. do you share that? >> i leave the political views and government spending but as it relates to the economy coming back, it doesn't feel like storming back but it feels like gradual, continued, hopefully sustained growth. it's not dramatic but it's growth and we've seen in our industry more people returning to the skies. that's good for the airline business. >> a lot of people see taxes go up. that goes into discretionary income or high income groups. will the tax hikes you've seen impact travelers, do you suspect? >> well, in general higher taxes are not good for the economy and not good for discretionary spending but as doug said, in the near term and what we can see, airline demand looks robust and because the supply, the capacity environment in the industry, has been pretty tame, it makes for a pretty healthy environment, revenue environment in the airline business. >> the head of the senate commerce committ
government programs is not great but it's really an oversimplification of the issue. >> molly, what about the plan put forth earlier this week, the $110 billion plan to avert the sequester. is that going to gain any traction? >> i doubt it. republicans have already basically said that's dead on arrival and as jake said it's not like they were getting anything done here in washington before they went on vacation. there really hasn't been any progress. there are no negotiations, nobody's talking to each other. you have these one-sided plans being put together and then they sort of get lobbed over the fence and the other side says eh, no. we're a long way from a constructive dialogue happening between the parties on capitol hill. >> jake in a piece yesterday you wrote "house republicans say if they spend the next two years like they spent the past two they'll become irrelevant." who are the most prominent republicans leading this charge toward as you put it irrelevancy? >> toward irrelevancy basically the entire house republican conference and the leadership have spent the last two years fig
gun laws. government records for 2010 show 3 out of 5 gun deaths in the united states were suicides. that grim proportion has been roughly the same every year for the past decade. we'll have much more on this story coming up. dr. drew pinsky will join me live here in "the situation room" in the next hour. he recently spoke to mccready. we're going to talk about that conversation, what she said to him and much more. >>> tomorrow, the south african olympic athlete oscar pistorius will be in court. a memorial service will be held for his model girlfriend who he is accused of killing. cnn's robyn kurnow has more. >> reporter: a beautiful girl, a beach and a reality tv show. which showed contestant reeva's romantic side. >> you fall in love with being in love. >> reporter: she died just days before this aired. it will continue to run on south african television for the next nine weeks. meanwhile, her boyfriend, the double amputee and olympic athlete, oscar pistorius, spent the past few days in this jail, charged with her murder. the charge strongly denied by pistorius and his family. thi
around the other night, right? >> he did and his solution is essentially spend more government money. he unveiled a long list of new spending programs. he called them investments but they are really spending government money, spend that money and that's the way he thinks we'll get this economy back into gear and to start growing again. but his solution basically, spend more bought money. martha: all right. stuart, thank you very much for that this morning. let's get a look at some other things that are impacting our economy this morning. go over to bill. bill: you think about the drag on the economy when this happens, martha. what we've done here, we've taken the national average last year at this time, starting on the 1st of january, up to mid-february where we are today, february 14th. this is a period of about, oh, 45 some odd days or so and you see the blue line here as we track the gas prices a year ago, and they really got high toward the middle part of february. well take our slide rule here and put this in motion. the green line now is 2013. you see we're under it, right? right t
will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin bashir starts now. >> thank you so much. good afternoon. it's thursday, february the 14th. and wayne lapierre has a valentine's card for the american people. grab a gun because the end is near. isn't that romantic? >> wayne lapierre is expanding his argument now. >> background checks will never be universal because criminals will never submit to them. >> after hurricane sandy, we saw the hellish world. >> come out to play. >> looters ran wild in south brooklyn. really? >> and if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. >> this is so laced with racial overtones. the republican party, if they were smart, their leaders today with condemn it, but they're not smart. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. ♪ >>> a busy valentine's day, indeed, with the president traveling to georgia just as senate r
in a letter that the president did not personally ask the libyan government for help. and acknowledged he relied on then secretary of state hillary clinton, to reach out on his behalf. that is a revelation that outraged senators lindsey graham. >> the president of united states did not make any phone calls to any government official in libya, the entire period of the attack. he found out from the letter he called governmmnt officials in libya on september 12. after everyone was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for push are for this the more answers we've gotten, we've shown this is a national security failure. >> oyote and graham have beee two of the most system skeptical. but they are hardly the republican's only concerns, questions remain over the former senator's past statements and his votes on israel, iran, iraq and nuclear weapons, and at this hour not clear that hagel will be able to placate opposition to his domination, but sense tear reed said that the senate the try for a vote 12 days from today. senate majority leader just released this statement, we want to share
of how our government works, but you and i were speaking before the break, and you said this crisis probably could have been averted. >> sure. i think the dysfunctionality is in part to blame for, you democrats. we had a chance to make serious reform on the filibuster process, and we took a walk on it. we passed some things that didn't amount to anything. we had a real chance to put a crimp into the dysfunctionalty, and we didn't do it, but i also say, alex, i have no clue what the republican party is doing about anything. about guns, about this. they seem to be hurdling into disaster -- into greater disaster than they are now. what do they think they're gaining in the eyes of the american people by doing this? >> josh, there are obviously the optics of democrats not being able to get the 60 vote threshold, but at the end of the day i think this looks very bad for the gop. republicans deny they were filibustering say they would prolong debate. holding up the cabinet pick that should have been. >> they did meet the threshold, which traditionally has been 51 votes, so these are extrao
into the dark for the united states government and the american people. a long leap into the dark. 40 years after president nixon said no to preschool for all american kids with the weird leaping in the dark analogy, president obama is trying to bring a version of that idea back with a plan for early education for all americans. but this time the president has wind in his sails blowing in from an unlikely source. it's blowing in from a really, really red state. from maybe the reddest of all red states. this is how oklahoma voted in 2012. mitt romney swept every county. in 2008 john mccain swept every county. in 2004 george bush swept every county. oklahoma is the reddest place we've got in america. and republicans, you may have heard, like to think that they do not think much of the policy ideas of barack obama. which is why it was so interesting to hear the two states that president obama mentioned as models when he announced his state of the union plan for preschool. >> tonight i propose working with states to make high-quality preschool available to every single child in america. [ appla
in and out of government, hillary clinton is one of the most informed, passionate, and dedicated public servants i have had the privilege to serve alongside. she has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for everyone, to build a better future for this country and the world. she believes everyone deserves a chance to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. it was her inspiration that encouraged me to move forward and to be able to bring down the last barriers for women in the department of defense and to give them the ability to have a chance to engage in combat. thank you for the inspiration. 70 years ago, the only person to serve as secretary of state and defense was george marshall. he is honored with the nobel peace prize. he accepted the award months after the armistice of the korean peninsula marched over "a very strong military posture is vitally necessary, but it is too narrow a basis on which to build a long and enduring peace. we need a spiritual regeneration to develop goodwill, faith, and understanding among nations. there must be ways down and the will to act on that wis
